“Our mission is to teach Nigerian women about
effective birth control methods reduce maternal
mortality and avoid overuse of antibiotics
which makes them vulnerable to complications
linked to dysbiosis of the gut microbiota and leads
to growing antimicrobial resistance
A Nigerian pharmacist, Edith Odeh,
has two objectives: helping women
to use antibiotics properly and
teaching them about contraception.
That ambition earned her the first
Henri Boulard Award, in 2021.
